    Can’t tell from any one the hands on videos, but does anyone know if they keyboard folds back or under like the previous generations?

    It appears to fold back, but it’s just a straight book hinge, so the keys will face out. There does not appear to be a way to use it as a stand without the keys in the front.

    Thanks, bummer as I often like to view the iPad standing up w/o the keyboard in the way.

    I ordered the ASK, but I’m pretty sure I’m returning it and going with the regular folio for exactly that reason. I’ll just use my BT keyboards with it.

    I think the saving grace of the new keyboard folio for me is that it's going to allow me to easily just pop the iPad off the back of the case and use it without the keyboard. This was the main reason I ditched my previous ASK for the 10.5" Pro and started using this case instead: https://www.zagg.com/us/en_us/keyboards/rugged-messenger-apple-ipad-pro-10-5

    If Zagg had one of these ready for the new 11", I might have considered ordering that instead, even though it might have meant giving up wireless charging on the Pencil. It was the best iPad case in general that I have ever owned, and I sold it as a package with my 10.5" a few weeks ago.

    Really hope Belkin releases a keyboard/case for the 3rd gen 12.9. I loved their Qode for my Ipad Air 2
